Why Apple TV is a different strategy to Xbox One
Yesterday, I wrote a post on Microsoft’s flawed strategy to control the living room, and cross-posted it to Gamasutra.
One commenter asked, quite reasonably, why if the living room is on its way out, are so many people anticipating Apple TV . Another commenter gave a concise, elegant answer that I can’t better, so I’m just reproducing it here:
“Apple TV acknowledges your phone/tablet is your primary screen, so they (try) to make it easy to push content (photos, music, games, video) through to the lounge screen via Apple TV. Modern consoles treat the phone/tablet like a side gimmick to enhance whatever the console is doing.”
Thank you, Jamie Churchman.
